Ways of Drawing - Mini Drawing Marathon & Drinks Reception

Ways of Drawing book

Free evening Drawing Marathon

Shoreditch studios: 5 – 7pm

To celebrate the release of the Royal Drawing School’s first book, Ways of Drawing: Artists’ Perspectives and Practices (Thames & Hudson), join us for a free Drawing Marathon, taking over our Shoreditch studios for one evening. Six courses will run from our three studios, each course taught by a member of Royal Drawing School faculty who contributed to the book. Bringing the book to life, the courses will reflect the three main sections of Ways of Drawing; Studio Space, Inner Space and Open Space. Students select two courses, each lasting 45 minutes with a 15 minute break in between.

This is a free event, but booking online is required. Places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. There are 60 spaces available. 

Tickets are fully booked now, but please do come along to the drinks reception and pick up your copy of Ways of Drawing, available to purchase on the night for £25.

Drinks reception

Shoreditch gallery, 6 – 8pm

After the Marathon, all students are invited to join tutors and some of the book’s contributors for a drinks reception in the ground floor gallery where The Drawing Year End of Year Exhibition 2018-19 will be on display. For those who are not able to attend the Marathon, we welcome you to join us for the drinks reception from 6pm.

Ways of Drawing: Artists’ Perspectives and Practices will be available to buy at a discounted rate for this evening only (RRP: £29.95). If you can't wait until the 5th to get your hands on a book, you can purchase your copy here
